Geotechnical and environmental applications of geophysics methods in Hong Kong
Prof Chan Lung Sang (陳龍生教授)
(PHKU and HKU SPACE)
ABOUT THE TALK
Geophysical surveys in an urban setting are subject to anthropogenic noise, electromagnetic interference and traffic and other regulatory constraints. In spite of these limitations, a large range of geophysical techniques have been applied in Hong Kong in geological, geotechnical and environmental investigations. Among these techniques are surface and downhole seismic, GPR, microgravity, resistivity, magnetic, EM, acoustic, infrared thermography, gamma density, and gamma-ray spectroscopy. The speaker will give an overview of Hong Kong’s experiences with the application of the geophysics methods and discuss the applicability and efficacy of the methods for resolving various geotechnical problems.
